Jacqueline Wilson was born in Bath in 1945, but spent most of her childhood in Kingston-on-Thames. She always wanted to be a writer and wrote her first "novel" when she was nine, filling in countless Woolworths’ exercise books as she grew up. As a teenager she started work for a magazine publishing company and then went on to work as a journalist on Jackie magazine (which she was told was named after her!) before turning to writing novels full-time. One of Jacqueline’s most successful and enduring creations has been the famous Tracy Beaker, who first appeared in 1991 in The Story of Tracy Beaker. This was also the first of her books to be illustrated by Nick Sharratt. Since then Jacqueline has been on countless awards shortlists and has gone on to win many awards.Review:
"Weaves plenty of plot strands in a very short space, and leaves us smiling at the end. Which is definitely the way to do it" * Daily Telegraph * "An excellent, fast-moving story, full of humour for competent readers" * The Good Book Guide * "Jacqueline Wilson's easy, humorous style deals lightly with a serious problem. Many children who share Tim's agonies will perhaps take courage from this entertaining story" * The School Librarian *
